Vim navigation

I love the idea of keyboard navigation. And I see that WK has taken a stance on WASD vs HJKL navigation (joking). I prefer (i.e. have strong muscle memory for) vim-like navigation. I tried searching the boards and a quick search for user-scripts and am not seeing anything that would provide vim-like navigation. Is there anything I am missing?


I haven’t seen anything like that

Wait, I’m confused, where can you navigate in vanilla wanikani with your keyboard besides the obvious tab order?
I personally use vimium-c on my browser. It adds typeable labels onto clickable elements when pressing a button, which makes it very leap-esque.


Seems like it is relatively new? This Feb 22 post came up when I was originally searching.

It shows up as a little kbd icon in the lower right in Lessons and Reviews.

It might be time for me to revisit vim-navigation browser plug-ins. I gave up around the time Firefox changed their add-on API and many of the projects (including the one that worked best for me) moved on to other things.


Ah, okay, so it’s a lessons thing

Here’s a very quick and dirty userscript, that should (this isn’t italicized enough sadly) match the awsd behaviour


Just tried it out, this is awesome! Thank you, kind netizen.

Cheers to those of the vi persuasion.

I’m not alone.

Once the neural networks are programmed, anything else seems irritating.

(But I still call it vi from usage long before vim was a thing).
